Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap Review & Giveaway – Winners!

Standard

Dial-Soap-Giveaway

Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway!  I loved hearing how you pamper your hands.  I wish I could give everyone a coupon to try this great soap, but I only have two to give away.  I took all your names to Random.org to choose the winners fairly.  The two winners are: Hilary and Theresa!  Congratulations, ladies!  I will be contacting you via email to get your mailing addresses.

I’m so excited about the newest product that I’ve just tested out for Dial and Purex Insiders! It is fabulous and two of my readers will get to try it for themselves because I’m giving away two coupons for a FREE bottle.
I got my bottle of Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub hand soap a week or so ago and I opened it immediately.It’s the the newest member of the Dial® Boutique Collection Hand Soap line.  It smelled so yummy! And it works, too! It’s designed to gently exfoliate your hands when you wash them and that’s exactly what it did. My hands felt softer after using it. It reminded me a little of the homemade sugar scrub I made for gifts this last Christmas, except it has soap in it with the scrub. Not only did I like this new soap, my family thought it rocked, too!
So, on to the giveaway – two lucky readers will each receive a coupon to try a bottle of Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap for FREE!

Purex PowerShot Review & Giveaway – Winners!

Standard

Purex-Giveaway

Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway!  I entered your names over at Random.org and my 2 winners are: Karin A. and Dawn K.  Congratulations – be sure to check your email for a message from me, so I can get your contact info. and send you both your prize!

Have you ever had a laundry disaster? Not just having the dryer eat your socks, but a full on ‘everything went wrong’ kind of laundry disaster? I have! Today, it’s funny to think about, but when it happened, yeah, not so funny.
It happened a year or two after we had moved into our first house. It was a spring day and my husband had chosen to drive in to work rather than take the bus. I decided to start doing some laundry, so I started a load and went about doing other tasks. While I was doing those tasks, I kept hearing something strange and thought my son was playing in the bathroom. I checked on him and found him playing, but not in the bathroom and not with water. So, I decided to check the laundry and found, to my dismay, water spraying everywhere! One of the water hoses to the washer had cracked under the water pressure and was spraying water all over my dryer – it actually cut through the venting hose on the dryer and was flooding my garage. I panicked and called my husband who told me how to shut off the water and he then drove the 45 minutes home to help mop up the garage, dry out the dryer and replace the venting hose. That was my laundry disaster, you can tell me about yours when you enter my giveaway.  And don’t forget to check those washer hoses – the same thing happened to my neighbor this last summer, but her laundry is in the house.  They ended up needing to replace flooring and drywall and it took a while.  Replace those hoses every 5 years, because, trust me, they do wear out and that is a lot of water!!
That’s right, it’s time for that giveaway I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. First, I need to tell you about the product that you could win a coupon to try it for FREE!
Purex has a new detergent called “Purex PowerShot” – it’s concentrated, so you use less, it has it’s own measuring system inside the bottle, so no more messy lids and you can even see through the bottle! Definitely, not a laundry disaster!
I tried Powershot on my bedding and it did a great job! My son said that it smelled great and I just have to trust that he’s right – my sniffer isn’t working today due to a head cold. I like the measuring system in the bottle, but I think my favorite thing about the bottle is that I can see how much detergent is left in the bottle, no more guessing whether I’m close to being out of laundry detergent, I see how much I have with my own eyes!
So,the good part (in my opinion, anyway) – two of my readers will have a chance to try Purex PowerShot for themselves and see justhow great it is! To enter, leave a comment telling me your worst laundry disaster. For bonus entries – share this giveaway on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest and be sure to come back and leave a comment telling me where you shared this giveaway and a link for me to verify your share. You can also earn a bonus entry for liking Sweepstakes in Seattle on Facebook (again be sure to leave a comment). Also, Purex has a sweepstakes running to promote Purex Powershot – don’t forget to check it out, you can enter to win a new washer and dryer!
My rules: This giveaway is open to U.S. residents age 18 and older. Giveaway ends Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015 at 9pm PT. Prize is one coupon for a FREE bottle of Purex Powershot (2 winners).

Disclaimer: I was given a FREE bottle of Purex Powershot from the folks at Purex to try in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and were only influenced by my experience with the product.

Purex Crystals Aromatherapy Product Review & Giveaway – Win a coupon for a FREE bottle!

Standard

Purex-GiveawayThe last few weeks I’ve been trying out a new product from Purex. I’ve been using their new Purex Crystals Aromatherapy Energy (citrus scent). I was very excited to try this new product as I have been a big fan of their original fabric softener crystals, I love the Fresh Spring Waters scent.
This new scent is stronger than the original crystals and when I took my first sniff of it in the bottle, I admit I wasn’t sure that I was going to like it, but I used it on my towels and they smelled fabulous when I pulled them out of the dryer. The scent lasted longer, too! That made me happy because I love soft, great smelling towels.

So, would you like to try it for yourself? I’m giving two lucky readers a coupon for a FREE bottle of Purex Crystals Aromatherapy. To enter go to the Purex Crystals Aromatherapy page, look at the scent choices and leave a comment telling me what scent you would love to try for yourself. You may earn a bonus entry by liking Sweepstakes in Seattle on Facebook and leaving a comment telling me that you did. If you already like Sweepstakes in Seattle on Facebook – just share this giveaway (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, email) and leave a comment telling me where you shared this giveaway.
Giveaway is open to US residents 18+.  Giveaway ends November 12, 2014 at 12:00 pm PST.

Dial Coconut Water Mango Body Wash Review & Giveaway – Win a coupon for a FREE bottle!

Standard

Dial-Coconut-Body-Wash-GiveawayRecently, I had the opportunity to try the new Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango body wash and now I get to share my thoughts about it with you – plus, two lucky readers will each win a coupon to try this product for themselves – for FREE!
I tried the original Dial Coconut Water body wash several months ago and I really liked it.  So, really the only thing new and different is the scent – Mango.  I liked the scent, it smells great in the bottle.  It isn’t an overpowering scent, it’s pretty light when you’ve showered with it, so it’s not going to overwhelm anyone near you with the scent, which is something I like and there are some places I go where scent is a big no-no.  I would not be worried about going to those places after using this body wash!
Like the original, this body wash is great for hydrating my skin and keeping it soft.  It rinses off well, I don’t feel like there’s any residue left.  I really like it!  Want to try it for yourself?  Here are the giveaway details:
The giveaway is open to US residents 18+ (and who have not won a giveaway from me in the last 2 months).
Entry #1 : Leave a comment telling me what your favorite body wash scent is and the company that makes it.
Entry #2 : Share this giveaway with someone – on Facebook, Twitter or word of mouth – then come back and leave a comment telling me how you shared the giveaway.
Entry #3 : Follow Sweepstakes in Seattle on FB and leave a comment telling me that you are a follower.
Giveaway will end at 5 pm. August 18, 2014 and I will announce the winner Aug. 19, 2014.

***The Dial brand provided me with a sample of Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango body wash in exchange for a product review. However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.

Spellbinders Celebra’tions Collection Review & Giveaway – Win a Spellbinders stamp set!

Spellbinders-kitsBefore I found sweepstakes and fell in love, I had something else I loved madly (and yes, I do mean MADLY)! Card making with papers, stamps, ink and accessories – I still love it! That’s why I’m excited to share with you a new product line from Spellbinders I got to try out recently, thanks to Purex Insiders. I’m new to the Spellbinders company, but I loved these kits! Everything I needed to complete the projects were included, except for scissors and some adhesive. The projects went together very quickly – all the directions were there.  It was quick, easy to assemble and a lot of fun!

Spellbinders-instructionsOf course, I’m crafty, so I didn’t need all the directions since it had a photo with the directions. I’m sure that if you weren’t a crafty person, you could still put these together with ease – the directions are that good . I’m going to use these for some upcoming birthdays, I didn’t finish the cute bag, since I don’t have anything to fill it with yet.

Spellbinders-finished-productsSo, this was a small sample of what you can get in the new Spellbinders Celebra’tions Collection. They have dies and stamp sets, paper and inks. It all looks fabulous and like it would make some cute cards and other paper crafts – you can see it all for yourself here.
Now – the giveaway! One lucky Sweepstakes in Seattle reader will win a 15-piece  Spellbinders stamp set! You can see it in the photo. The set is called “Many Words” and you can see it here. You can earn up to 6 entries.

Purex No Sort Detergent Review & Giveaway:

Purex has a new laundry detergent that is advertised as No Sort. When I heard the words “No Sort”, I immediately wanted to try it and see if it would work for me. Anything to save time on laundry, right? At least for me, laundry is not my favorite chore. So, Purex sent me a bottle of the new laundry detergent to try (and share my opinion with you). I, of course, put it to the test right away. I washed a load of laundry that included some of my husband’s bright white under shirts and a couple of pairs of his older jeans and a variety of other clothing. I was hoping to see fabulous results like I get with Purex with Oxy. Unfortunately, the detergent did not pass this test – my husband’s under shirts came out slightly blue-grey and certainly not the bright white that they had been when I put them in the wash. I was bummed!
I’m not sure why this detergent didn’t work for me. I washed everything in cold water, the jeans were at least 2 yrs. old. Jeans are a hard test and I was hoping for great results. Maybe it’s my water or maybe the detergent needs some tweaking. I will say that the scent that I tried smelled fabulous. So, it didn’t work for me (it cleaned the clothes well, but didn’t eliminate the need to sort the clothes), would you like to try it for yourself and see if it works for you? I’m giving two of my readers a coupon to try Purex No Sort Detergent! To enter, leave a comment telling me how doing laundry without sorting would be beneficial to you and your family. To earn bonus entries, follow Sweepstakes in Seattle on Facebook and Pinterest and share the sweepstakes with your friends – leave a comment for each bonus entry that you have completed. The Giveaway will end Monday, April 28th. Good luck!
